Deck the Paws 12/9 & 10

  For one magical weekend, The Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County will transform into a pet-friendly winter wonderland. Kids will make holiday crafts, play games, and enjoy hot chocolate and Christmas cookies. We'll have giveaways for dogs, too! Pictures with Santa will be available to kids, pets, families, and individuals for $25. Photos will be printed after your session, and you'll be able to leave with a photo in hand! Our lobby will turn into a howl-iday shopping mall, where you'll find some great vendors. Check back soon for an official announcement of vendors. No RSVP is necessary; first-come, first-served. Saturday's session will be 12/9 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. Santa will be taking his milk-and-cookie break from 1-1:30pm. Sunday's session wil be 12/10 from noon to 5 p.m. Santa will be taking his milk-and-cookie break from 2-2:30pm. For information on how to become a vendor, please contact Kristen Everson at Read More
